Effective Secrets For Simplified
Bridesmaids and groomsmen Pre-wedding festivities can be even more expensive to attend than the wedding itself. Bachelor party attendees spent an average $738, or $1,532 if travel and lodging required, the survey found. Bachelorette party spending averaged $472 and $1,106, respectively. Multiply those outlays by an average three weddings per year, and celebrating other people’s marriages is no small expense. A big contributor: One in 5 weddings is a “destination wedding” somewhere other than the couple’s home, per The Knot. Travel costs can quickly add up for friends and family attending. Nearly 40 percent of consumers say they have spent more than $600 on travel for a wedding, according to a recent survey from Priceline.com. That includes 15 percent who have shelled out $1,000-plus. The travel site surveyed 1,016 adults age 21 and older during February. Try these five strategies to keep costs in check: Before you RSVP “yes,” gauge how much you’ll have to spend to attend. Four in 10 invitees told Priceline they have RSVP’d “no” to a wedding due to high travel costs.
